with the people of libya that are finally free from muammar gadhafi. around the world, there's a new attitude toward america. new confidence in our leadership. when people are asked, which country do you admire most? one nation always comes out on top. the united states of america. [ applause ] and that's the progress that we've made thanks to your incredible service. we're winding down a war, we're destroying terrorist networks that attack us. and we restored american leadership. and today, every american can be proud that the united states is safer, the united states is stronger, and the united states is more respected in the world. now, when i was here last, i made you a pledge. i said that as president, i will insist that america serves you and your families as well as you have served us. and there, again, i meant what i said because part of ending wars responsibly is caring for those who fought in it. that's why i wanted to come back to bliss on this anniversary to reaffirm our solemn obligations to you and your families. you see, we may be turning a page on a decade of war, but

ourselves back then. he did his best with north korea, and his libya policy was not that bad and disarming gadhafi. and there are policies things that you can say good things about him. but part of what michael shure is saying, they don't like the guy and they have a visceral reaction. >> as opposed to their good nature towards bill clinton all those years ago. >> cenk: i know. by the way poll-rising figures nonsense. fox news is what polarizes all of that. bill clinton, hillary clinton, and then obama, and then you wonder why people don't like him. because somebody tried to do that and succeeded. >> he has divided the country because we all eight hate him. >> cenk: right, and when we come back we'll to a dangerous case of people hating the president. they tried to to to assassinate him. are they terrorists? they are white, i don't know if they can be terrorists. we'll be right back. >> give the government back to the people. start the revolution. >> yes. hershey's drops. a lot of hershey's happiness in little drops of milk chocolate. and cookies n creme. pure hershey's.

. he helped dispose gadhafi in libya and brought an end to the war in iraq which was a campaign promise. if you're looking for honesty about these issues, folks, you were simply at the wrong convention. >> we can't afford to cost our friends and allies from latin america to europe to asia to the middle east and especially in israel, a nation under existential threat, to doubt america's leadership. >> we cannot be reluctant to lead, and you cannot lead from behind. >> his trillion dollar cuts to our military will eliminate hundreds of thousands of jobs and also put our security at greater risk. >> last friday, mitt romney brought up the president of the united states, his birth certificate. they can't get away from that, but wait a minute, it was just a joke. but the day after the republican convention, speakers lined up to question president obama's americanness. is he really an american? president obama has been president of the united states for nearly four years and republicans are still questioning his values as an american citizen. it's the twisted version of the truth and

others but all in all he's kept the country safe. he was idealistic where he could be in libya, he's been prague mat where i can he had to be, china and russia and i think he's sort of split the baby on afghanistan and what not. but he's kept the country safe. that was bush's claim after four years. and i don't think anyone's walking around saying i can't live another day with barack obama's commander in chief. >> rose: syria, regardless of who's president what should we be doing? >> my view, charlie, is very simple. that serious yah is iraq. it's just the twin sister. it's a ba'athist regime ruling a multiethnic society. iraq had a sunni minority ruling a shiite majority with kurds and other minorities on the side. syria has a shiite minority ruling a sunni majority with kurds and other minorities. they are mirror images of each other. now, what happened in iraq was we pulled the pin. we removed the dictator at the top and that led to an explosion sand what american did in iraq was the geopolitical equivalent >> rose: we weren't prepared for what would happen after we removed the pi

extent do we want to send people at the drop of a hat into libya or somalia or syria or wherever? but there are some big items there. one of my -- and i think the trouble with the defense budget, it's a little bit like covering the federal reserve. it's developed a set of facts and speech and concepts that outsiders can't understand. so in the book i tried to take just one thing that the defense department has to decide; how many aircraft carriers are enough? so congress, in its infinite wisdom, has told the pentagon that they have to have 11 aircraft carriers. they got special permission to have ten for a while while they're building a new one, and the pentagon wallets to replace -- wants to replace one aircraft carrier every five years for the rest of of my life. these new aircraft carriers, which are enormous -- the navy calls them four-and-a-half acres of mobile, sovereign territory -- [laughter] costs $11 billion. $11 billion is the same amount that medicare will spend on all the hip, knee and shoulder surgery on 700,000 medicare beneficiaries. so that's -- when you do your
